On Monday night Sally and I decided to meet for dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant halfway between her house and mine. We hadn't seen each other since the ill-fated movie Avatar (the 3D made me puke) in mid-January. We wanted to get together, just us girls, to chat and catch-up.
Sally insisted on a prankster of a photo in which she stuck food in between her teeth.
She made me laugh, which is a good thing nowadays. :)
Us, outside of the restaurant. She insisted we make merriment in front of the cow.
Even though we chatted about some very serious topics, we had such a great time together that it was good for the soul. I'll be honest and say that the last few weeks I've been in a funk. In fact, I've had a difficult time with 2010 so far. In January I worked my butt off at my full-time job, while working nights to get ready to open my store at Little Dreamer Designs. While that was very exciting, I did nothing else. It really wore me down. February did not get any better, as I was apprehensive about Valentine's weekend and the three year anniversary of my mom's death and visiting my dad and Shelly. Then the very next weekend we were out of town again in San Francisco for a family reunion. I just haven't had time to breathe and to process. Silly fun and a good chat with a good friend was exactly what I needed. Even then, I had to push myself out the door on a week night to go meet Sally for dinner. Earlier that day, I thought maybe I shouldn't go because it was a Monday and I had so much to do. But sometimes you just gotta drop some other things in order to do something that's good for you.
When I look back at my blog in January and February 2009, I did so much more stuff outside, with people too. This year I have felt so isolated, which is not a good thing. I really hope that I can make more time to be with friends and go outside and do fun things.
